Have you ever had a famous person as a patient in hospital or clinic? You need not say the reason for their visit for sake of confidentiality, if they are still living. Did they expect or receive special or unique attention?

Were they humble or pretentious?

The individual and their family were very nice. It was the behavior of my employer that needed adjustment.

You do realize that for someone to reveal that would be a HIPAA violation, correct?

Back in the early 90's, a fella who called himself "Jesus the Prince of Peace" was a patient at Anomaly State Hospital.

He told me that if I opened the door and let him out, he would make love to his girlfriend and there would be "worldly peace".

I told the patient that as much as I would really really like to, I had to keep my job.

I wondered out loud if I prevented world peace for the sake of my job.

Who knows?

I mean: really?

Wuzzie, do you mean their name is "Ineffable"?

^THIS. The way employers act over celebrities, or even just "VIP" people who might know someone in executive management absolutely disgusts me.

I took care of a MBA baseball picture that was in town playing. He was extremely nice and didn't expect any special treatment other than to be kept away from reporters as he was leaving.

Not a celebrity but I took care of a state congressman and he was a butthole and treated me like I was an idiot servant, rather than an educated professional.

I love auto correct. What type of restoration did the picture require 😂.
